Spending a pivotal summer near a teeming pond where people are rumored to disappear, a girl from a dysfunctional family and a girl enduring a reluctant visit become fast friends before uncovering a decades-old secret that reverberates throughout the town. By the Newbery Honor-winning author of Afternoon of the Elves. Simultaneous eBook.

Simon and Schuster
Newbery Honor winner Janet Taylor Lisle’s “striking, enigmatic, and haunting” (Booklist, starred review) novel about a pivotal summer in two girls’ lives explores the convictions we form, the judgments we make, and the values we hold.

The pond is called Quicksand Pond.

It’s a shadowy, hidden place, full of chirping, shrieking, croaking life. It’s where, legend has it, people disappear. It’s where scrappy Terri Carr lives with her no-good family. And it’s where twelve-year-old Jessie Kettel is reluctantly spending her summer vacation.

Jessie meets Terri on a raft out in the water, and the two become fast friends. On Quicksand Pond, Jessie and Terri can be lost to the outside world—lost until they want to be found. But a tragedy that occurred many decades ago has had lingering effects on this sleepy town, and especially on Terri Carr. And the more Jessie learns, the more she begins to question her new friendship—and herself.
